"I Get By With A Little Help From My Friends" 
By Jacqueline Wilczek

These lyrics ring especially true for young Steven Wilczek, of Remsen, NY. This summer Steven had the opportunity to attend Camp Colby, a N.Y. State Conservation Youth Camp near Saranac Lake. Being the first deaf person to attend, a problem arose. Who would interpret for Steven? With some special arrangements something really great happened. Steven's best friend from the public school where he attends, was allowed to go with him. Always attending a public school, friends who can sign are scarce. But, his best friend since kindergarten, Branden Ward, was very excited about the idea of going so he could help Steven. And, because Branden has learned sign language, the interpreter problem was solved!

So, for one week in August, the two boys got to experience something very special. They both passed a difficult swimming test, and then were introduced to the many wonderful counselors and other boys and girls from all over New York State. They spent the week hiking, canoeing, learning forestry and conservation, naming trees and going fishing. Even the night-time camp fires and story telling all worked out well! Most of the cost for the two boys was covered by the Wyndott Fish and Game Club.

God's blessings to anyone who cares enough to help someone less fortunate. It sometimes makes up for the difficulties and unfairness that people have. Steven and Branden are a great team. They go everywhere together, play every sport together and have a beautiful friendship.

Give thanks! potluck!
